SURREY & HAMPSHIRE U11 SEVEN-A-SIDE CHAMPIONSHIP

WHITGIFT ARE CHAMPIONS 

With splendid pitches and beautiful Autumn sunshine, 18 teams competed keenly in the Surrey & Hampshire round of the U11 seven-a-side competition.

From the group stages Whitgift, having not conceded a goal made it through group A joined by Portsmouth Grammar. Cranmore and Rokeby made it through from group B and the Group C winners were Hall Grove and runners up, Twyford School. Shrewsbury House and St. Andrew’s, Woking made it through as the two best placed 3rd teams.

Quarter-Finals
Cranmore, Rokeby and Whitgift were joined in the semi-finals by Shrewsbury House after the latter came through a tense quarter final match on a penalty shootout!

Semi-Finals
Whitgift dominated possession in their match against Rokeby scoring 5 impressive goals without conceding. Cranmore on the other hand fought back gamely from a 2 goal deficit to force yet another penalty shootout for Shrewsbury House. Second half momentum for Cranmore carried them through.

Final
The fluent expansive football that Whitgift had displayed throughout the afternoon was a joy to behold in a one sided final. Although Cranmore pressed from time to time they had no answer to Whitgift’s quick transferring of the ball between players. Their clinical finishing produced 6 outstanding gaols without reply.

Both teams will now have the experience of attending the National Finals to be held at St. George’s Park in May 2016.
